It’s been a year of change for Hopkins, who stepped into her current role last October. The new position included a cross-country move to NY, but no challenge is too great for this gamer to take on. Her career already is full of highlights, such as her inclusion in the 2017 class of Cable Pioneers, but she’s nowhere near finished as her relentless energy and drive are second to none. Hopkins channels that energy into building and maintaining a trusted network of top-level executives and industry influencers.
